The new slate of officers was introduced during the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s 2022 Annual Meeting held June 11-14.
Retaining and increasing membership in SNMMI-TS is Glasgow’s top priority as Technologist Section president. “We have had great momentum in the past year in bringing in more members to our great society,” said Glasgow. “As president, I will continue working to engage with technologists and build excitement for our field.”
Glasgow also plans to strengthen the society’s support for nuclear medicine technologists through enhanced communication and educational offerings. By making SNMMI-TS a one-stop shop for technologists, Glasgow hopes that more technologists will take advantage of all of the opportunities offered by the society.
Glasgow received her Bachelor of Science degree in nuclear medicine technology with a concentration in computed tomography in 2010 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She completed her Masters of Imaging Science degree and was certified as a Nuclear Medicine Advanced Associate at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas. Currently, Glasgow is pursuing her doctorate degree in health services administration with a concentration in health informatics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
An active member of the SNMMI-TS, Glasgow was president-elect for the Technologist Section from 2021-22. She serves on the SNMMI-TS Membership, Finance and Publications committees. She has been a member and chair of numerous task forces and working groups, including the SNMMI-TS Executive Board, Uptake Newsletter Editorial Board, Nuclear Medicine Week Working Group, Women in Nuclear Medicine Committee, Advocacy Committee and more. She is also an article reviewer for the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology.
Glasgow, an SNMMI-TS fellow, is an SNMMI-TS 2016 Leadership Academy graduate as well as a 2021 Advanced Leadership Academy graduate. She was the 2018 American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science Kleiner Award winner and has been awarded several grants from SNMMI-TS. Glasgow has also contributed to several books and has published four journal articles.
The SNMMI Technologist Section president-elect for 2022-23 is Dmitry Beyder, CNMT, MPA, St. Louis, Missouri.
